  • TC-Cancer email hacked or stolen

    Hey, just a head's up. The site got hacked (or they sold our email addresses, which I would find hard to believe).

    My unique email address I set up several years ago for this forum just got used to send me one of those creepy "I know what adult websites you're visiting because I have your email address and I hacked your computer...send me bitcoin..." emails.

    This could have been an old hack and just now got put on the dark web, or could be new. Just make sure you change your passwords and don't be too worried if you get threatening emails spoofing your own email address!

    On a more positive note, just had my last visit with my local oncologist. 7 years post-op (RPLND, high dose chemo, stem cell, etc). All clear!

    Thank you to everyone here that has given such great advice and encouragement. Hope and prayers to those still going through it and their families, and to the families of those who got taken. God bless.

    Best regards,

    Matt aka DrOneBall
